columnist mark shields and "new york times" columnist david brooks. >> this is friday, you're here, right. >> congressional committee voted to recommend a citation-- john boehner says will bring it to the full house next week but hasn't specified the day, what is going on. >> was's going on is a really dubious policy that opened up a lot of questions called fast and furious which basically ram guns out there with the expectation, full expectation that they would be bought by straw purchases and then end up in the custody of members and they-- gang members and then they could be traced for the prosecution of more serious crimes than just buying guns. it went awry. an agent of the alcohol tobacco firearms was killed in a shoot-out. and the question is the republicans in the house want a fuller explanation the department of justice expend-- is very much on the defensive. john edwards case they lost, the stevens case they lost. they haven't prosecuted anybody. wall street who brought the nation to its knees so, there is a certain lack of kind of support and enthusiasm for it but at the

conversations with david brooks. >> he is so sweet. university of chicago. >> as a reader of the columns, it does make me hopeful for the future that people who disagree politically could actually speak to each other civilly. tell us about how it got started and why you do it. tell us the truth about david brooks. what's he really like? >> david brookings is such a pumpkin. i love him. i hired him, actually. i was proud of that i was editor. bill had retired, and it was not actually a big secret we were looking far republican columnist. and the trick with the times and "times," the readership of the "times" people who read the opinion page tend to be more liberal than not. and i wanted to find a conservative columnist people would read even if they degreed with them. there was so many out there i could put in the paper. people looked at it and throw it down and walk away. david was -- he's very good at he grew up in the lower east side of new york. his parents were hippies. he went to chicago, as i told you. he knows -- he is the conservative but knows how to talk to the liberals. he's great

correspondent. and then, of course, there are political analysts david brooks and mark shields, who pull back the curtain on how the candidates are playing to democrats, republicans and independents. there is a reason this news team is trusted so much. they've earned it. the pbs newshour has distinguished itself as unbiased and tough but even-handed. your pledge right now is a vote of support for the kind of election coverage you only get on public television. >> petraeus was a key architect of american strategy in iraq... >> what we're trying to figure out how to do is... get this message across that the newshour is not just an archive online of last night's broadcast. but this is a living, breathing working newsroom all day long and that you can come to us, you can add us to your news diet and get us when you want, where you want. of course, the broadcast is still what all of us are working toward in the evening. but there's so much content up to that point that we're trying to help people understand that we have a lot of very sharp minds here that are working throughout the day. and you ca

people like david brooks. >> caller: i can't walk that much. i can't walk and talk. i have to sit and talk. >> stephanie: you say, david brooks irritates me, too. you say it's his duty to be all the things that david brooks wants him to be so he can lose nobodily and the country can go back to the rightful owners. the [♪battle hymn of the republic♪] the fact that americans elected a black man still maintains to awe and inspire. you can't full use of that either but virtue of his very election race is no longer an issue in this country. it's time for abram to barack obama to be as bold as he wants the country to be. great stuff and great advice to him, i think. >> caller: he won't take it, and he'll be cautious and look for 51% re-election. no one lives to me. >> stephanie: i listen to you. >> caller: from another movie, i have vision and everyone else is wearing bifocals. >> stephanie: i'm host of the insteadstephanie miller. >> was something talking there welcome about beef stew. >> stephanie: 49 minutes after the hour.

. what section would you like to work for, young man? david brooks hired you, didn't he? he will be in the mailroom. >> i always thought the only thing that would make this better is if there are two of them. both of you go away. so there is a socialist and chief and does he need celebrity relief 1234* he attempted to put the fun in fundraiser as he hobb knobbed and it has me so outraged that -- sorry, i can't do this. i have been teasing this story about relationships for the last two weeks. we never get to it. tonight i am hosting. guess who is leading off the a block. a study from the university of iowa has found that couples who have sex early on has the same quality as those who put off getting off. meaning that one nightstand could be the love of your life. as to what happens to the couples who wait? i am just not sure how those who have stayed together as long as they have. who are we to question it? paul, i go to you to get you out of the way. is there anyway it was not done by men in order for women to sleep with them? >> with regard to you as somebody who has delayed sex t

year when craig brooks posing as a pepco employee came to the buoy home of 44-year-old david williams. brooks walked all around the house talking about various electrical issues, but in fact he was casing the joint. the next day he came back to the house with his codefendant, and this time they tied williams up, shot him to death and robbed the place. >> they picked up everything they could find, money, coins, children's videos. >> reporter: brooks pleaded guilty last month. today after 2 1/2 hours of deliberations a jury convicted hastin of first degree murder. >> they could have just taken the property but they chose to kill mr. williams and walk out of the door. >> reporter: the state's attorney called the murder entirely sensely and is hoping today a swift verdict sends an unmistakable message. >> anyone who chooses to act in this way, who chooses to rob, to murder the citizens of this county, we will do everything that we can to bring them to justice. >> reporter: he will be sentenced on july 20th. david williams leaves behind his fiancee and daughter. the total take fro

happens. when all you read are david brook columns and a handful of power points that consultants bring you, you know, this is what really happens and it's really a shame. all of these folks who -- a very small group who led this ouster. they have uva diplomas. i think we must have failed them. they never learned how to analyze data how to judge arguments, how to construct an argument. the basic things you would learn in my class they never got to. i think what happened here was they are so proud of their own success and without any regard to the damage they may have done to the rest of us with their shenanigans in the economy but they are so proud of their success that they are convinced they have the only way of doing things. their particular set of aboutsbuzz words and ideology their spreadsheet way of thinking about the world is what they want to map onto everybody else. higher education is not the only place. we saw this flash point at the university of virg. we had a student uprising and an alum up rise. this is happening in public school districts all over america, happening to e

. >> yeah. one of the things i think that's always interesting, i disagree with david brooks on a variety of points he makes in that piece, mostly because we may pay lip service to equality but we actually aren't that committed to it. we do believe in the model, we believe in taking the people who are the smartest and putting them in charge of things but more than that, one of the things that's really fascinating about the data you just showed, who got hit the hardest from their wealth. it wasn't the poorest people. wasn't the working class. it was the middle, upper middle class who have seen their prospects dimmed and that's when you're seeing radicalization among that socioeconomic demographic. if you look at the tea party, and some folks in occupy wall street, a lot of that is frustration and betrayal from people who have degrees, are kind of upwardly mobile and have professional aspirations. >> also, it's important to note, pew also has a study on average income between 2005 and 2009. white incomes are down 16%. hispanic incomes are down 65%. african-american incomes are down 50%. you ta

, syndicated columnist mark shields and "washington post" columnist michael gerson, filling in for david brooks. gentlemen, good to you have with us. >> great to be here. >> woodruff: the solt hair ruling-- the health care ruling, mark, what is your take on it. >> my take on it, judy, is i had been unaware of how disspirited, even demoralized democrats had become until that health care decision came down. there was a new spring in democrats' steps. a new lift to their spirits. >> woodruff: really? >> yes, there really was. they needed a victory, they needed a win. and they hadn't had one for quite a while whether it's economic news or anything else. i mean i just-- everywhere i turn, every democrat i ran into was exhilarated, it seemed. and just uplifted by what happened. >> woodruff: unmitigated win for the democrats s that how you see? >> i think a supreme court victory for a president is better than a stick in the eye. and that's the alternative here. if it had been overturned it would have been disastrous for him this would have been his primary legislative achievement, you know, ove

david brooks. gentlemen, it's good to see you both. so let's start with our lead story and that is president obama's announcement today that he's going to give a break to young illegal immigrant, give them a chance to work in the country for at least two years. mark, we just heard the white house cecilia munoz of the white house tell jeff no politics involved here. >> there's politics, judy. it's an election year. but very bluntly, this is the worst day of mitt romney's life, as the presumptive nominee of the republican party. being president means that you are a negative end when there is bad job numbers. but being president when you can tack an affirmative action that makes your opponent squirm, even though it is an action that is totally consistent with where you have been and a policy sense, in this for mitt romney is a character issue. because in 2008-2012, he ran to the hard right of john mccain, of rudy giuliani, of mike huckabee there 2008, and of newt gingrich and rick perry in 2012 on the immigration. he embraced the ards ards controversial arizona state law. he said he w

, there are pieces from david brooks columns you can imagine in defense of private equity you could imagine if it came out of a candidate's mouth you would say okay well that doesn't sound rapacious and like gordon gecko that sounds reasonable. romney has not been able to mount that kind of a discussion about his background in that area and then of course there is the stuff with the church that i think he is scared of politically but when you can't -- >> rose: should he be? >> i think -- look, i think that, you know, nobody knows, but i just think that if you were a candidate, who cannot speak in human, compelling terms about the things that matter to you in your life, you are hobbling yourself in a way that exceeds the damage to yourself exceeds whatever damage you would do by talking about the thing to some narrow group of people. >> rose: clinton says you need to feel their pain. >> yes. and you have to be able to talk about yourself and what you care about in a way that makes people say, well, maybe he cares about different things than me but he obviously cares about that stuff,

. a good example of that? syndicated columnist mark shields and new york times columnist david brooks. they are regulars on the newshour, and they come from different sides of the aisle. but they treat each other with respect. especially in what has been a very contentious race for president, it's a relief to hear 2 people sit down as adults discussing the merits and pitfalls of one side or the other and what it might mean for the election. even in politics, we believe public television is the place for civic dialogue and balanced news coverage. what do you think? >> when you make your call with your donation, let us thank you with some very special gifts. when you pledge $75 or more,re you may request the newshour global tumbler. for a $100 contribution, you can ask for the newshour summit tote. it has multiple pockets and zips closed. perfect as a carry-on for your next flight or great for taking books or papers with you as you travel about town. or, for a pledge of $150, you can choose both the tumbler and the tote. these gifts show your pride in the pbs newshour and in public television
